These days technology are rapidly increasing and developing in various fields, especially data storage. The information that has been stored in a database usually called a dataset. Covid-19 is a new type of respiratory disease that attacks the respiratory system with rapid transmission, followed by the increasing number of Covid-19 cases that continues to increase every day in all provinces in Indonesia. This study aims to cluster the spread of Covid-19 in every province in Indonesia by using the data that obtained from the website named kaggle with many data variables. The method used in this research is K-Means. From many variables in the data, for this study only 3 variables were taken, which are: Number of Recovery, Number of Deaths, and Number of total Cases in Covid-19 in Indonesia. These 3 variables then will be applied using the K-Means method and formed 3 provincial groups. By using the clustering method and the K-means algorithm, this research can be carried out to find the characteristics of the distribution in each province in Indonesia by looking at the best clusters.
